Grand Opening Bash

What: Beer Festival

When: Sunday - July 07, 2013 @ 01:00PM to Sunday - July 07, 2013 @ 05:00PM

Where: Shmaltz Brewing Company, Clifton Park, New York
Come one, come all, and step right upstate New York on Sunday July 7th when we welcome YOU to Shmaltz Brewing Company's new brewing home in Clifton Park for a Grand Opening Bash so freaktastic and wild it may seem like we've been planning it for sixteen years.

Wet your whistle with limited, vintage and rare Shmaltz libations, including the SPECIAL ONE-DAY-ONLY RELEASE of our first ever Black IPA: DEATH OF A CONTRACT BREWER, as well as special offerings from our brewing friends at Smuttynose, Peekskill, Kelso, Empire, Mendocino and MORE!

Get ready to boogie down to the sweet sounds of Brooklyn's own Will Jones & The ACE Band (of The Dap Kings, Lee Fields and John Scofield fame); then marvel at death-defying performances from the "Dapper Dan of Danger," The Human Blockhead Donny Vomit and titillating burlesque by the girl with the 34.5 inseam, Legs Malone. Indulge your inner carny with carnival games and cotton candy.

Food from Clifton Park's Giffy's BBQ and Shirley's Café foodtruck will keep you going strong all afternoon long.

The $25 General Admission ticket buys you entrance to the coolest brewery-party- warming this summer and includes 5 beer tokens. Additional tokens can be purchased on-site.

Need a rockin' ride upstate from NYC? $50 buys you a round-trip bus ticket from Brooklyn to Clifton Park, breakfast snacks, entrance to the Grand Opening Bash and 5 beer tokens. We will meet in front of Kellogg's Diner (514 Metropolitan Avenue, Williamsburg, Brooklyn) at 8:45 am for a prompt 9:00 am departure to Clifton Park. Buses will leave from Clifton Park at 5:30 pm to return to NYC. Space is limited so grab tickets NOW!
